• Subject: Math

### Lines of Symmetry

Students will work collaboratively with a partner to discover what is a line of symmetry.

• Resource ID: TXLS205
• Subject: Math

### Balancing Act

Students use a pan balance model and manipulatives to identify a total that balances two parts. The use of the pan balance will help to develop the concept of equality. Students will develop the language of equality by reading and identifying the following expressions; balances, is the same as, is equal to, and equal before the symbol for equality is introduced. Students will identify an unknown part in a balance situation. Students will communicate ideas, explain, and justify how they solved problems.

### Square Root Regression

This lesson is a student discovery lesson that culminates in square root regression with technology. Students will use their study of inverses, the relationship between quadratic and square root functions, their previous knowledge of regression, and determine how to find the square root regression of real-world data.

### Demystifying Remainders

This lesson will introduce fourth-grade students to the concept of a remainder and the meaning of a remainder in the context of a word problem.

• Resource ID: TXLS082
• Subject: Math

### Ravaged Robot

Students will learn the concept of area by building a robot using manipulatives and transferring the representation onto grid paper. Then, students will determine the area of each designated body part on their think sheet.

### Comparing Box Plots and Dot Plots

This lesson is a 90-minute lesson that can be delivered in one block or split into two 45 minute lessons. The first part of the lesson engages students in a notice/wonder activity that is designed to help students begin to question how data is represented in box plots and dot plots. The second part of the lesson is designed for students to compare data in box plots and dot plots and identify truths and untruths about the representations.

### Interpreting Division with Remainders

Students will be given various one- and two-step word problems and asked to interpret the remainder. Students will use foldables and anchor charts to determine under which category (“Drop the Remainder,” “Add One to the Quotient,” “Share the Remainder,” or “The Remainder is the Answer”) the question will fall. After completing that portion of the lesson, students will solve division problems and determine which type of remainder question they are working with. They will use Plicker © cards to display their answers so the teacher can have immediate formative assessment data.
